Dr. Neal Schultz: Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz and welcome to DermTV. So, the phone rings and suddenly you find out that you only have the three days notice for a really important interview or meeting or maybe a party or a date. And you just need your face to look its very best. In a previous episode, I discussed at-home quick fixes for problems like facial rashes, acne, dull skin, facial discoloration and lines, and wrinkles. Today, for the same issues I'm going to discuss what a visit to your dermatologist can accomplish in those three days. Let's start with facial rashes. For that rash, whether it's red or swollen or just bumpy you are going to get probably prescription strength cortisone or maybe even an immunomodulators like elidel or protopic to help that rash go away real fast. For dull skin, there is nothing like acholic treatment or microdermabrasion treatment to get rid of the dead cells and give that skin a luster, give it a glow. In addition, if you have acne breakouts like alcoholic treatments can be done again, and again to get rid of dead cells, but this time the once that are helping contribute to the clogs in the pores. In addition, the acne pimples, but white heads black heads or cyst don't all be cleaned out to make them go away faster and make them go down sooner. If you are probably windup getting a prescription strength, topical antibiotic product, to put actually on the pimples, you'll probably also get prescription strength product to put on it at night time again to help them go away faster. If you have really, really better swollen cyst, you may, under special circumstances even get oral cortizone treatment for just a few days to help them go down much faster. Most lines and wrinkles on your face are helped by fillers immediately, the same day you get the treatment. For certain dynamic lines, like forehead lines, frown lines or even crow's feet the disport brand of botulinum toxin does its magic in just two days. You've accomplished a great deal in these three days, but don't forget you can also use the at-home fixes such as green tinted foundation to help cover red and other things we discussed in that episode. Good luck and have a great hour. Please join me again at dermtv.com. If you have a question please send it to me by visiting dermtv.com/question. I'm Dr. Neal Schultz and thank you for watching today.
